Billowing smoke dwarfed firefighters battling a massive fire from an aerial ladder, after a Tuesday afternoon explosion at Ken Johnson Trucking Ltd. in the industrial section of Port Kells.

A series of explosions and fires rocked a North Langley trucking company, sending one man to hospital with burns and causing an evacuation Tuesday afternoon. One employee was injured in the explosions and fire. He was rushed to hospital by Air Ambulance. Langley Township assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson said he was relieved that more people were not hurt in the fire that consumed much of a building. “It definitely had the

One, possibly two tanker trucks exploded, followed by further explosions of shop supplies, likely including acetylene tanks and tires. A trailer loaded with isopropyl alcohol was near the site, but the fire didn’t spread far enough to reach it.

The 911 call came in at just after 2 p.m., alerting firefighters to an explosion at Ken Johnson Trucking Ltd in the 19800 block of Telegraph Trail. Other explosions, caused by the tires and acetylene tanks, occurred as firefighters arrived at the scene and began setting up. From the start, there

was a concern that the fire was chemical in nature, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. Ken Johnson Trucking hauls chemicals, lubricating oils, and special waste, according to the company’s website. It’s unclear what was in the trucks that exploded. Police and fire crews immediately began evacuating the area, getting employees out of businesses as far west as 192nd Street in Surrey. Langley Township firefighters battled the blaze, with help from Surrey and Langley City fire crews. About seven fire crews were on hand at one point to extinguish the fire. Power was knocked out as several transformers blew, said Marks. Langley RCMP and Port Mann Traffic Services were there to control

the scene, with B.C. Ambulance providing medical aid, said Marks. The Golden Ears Bridge was shut down, as were rail lines in the area, and multiple roads, said Marks. Traffic in the area suffered some snarls as drivers were diverted away from the bridge and off of parts of 96th Avenue and surrounding streets. The company sent out a letter of thanks Wednesday to everyone who responded to help: “We wish to extend our deepest thanks to everyone who came to our aid after yesterday’s horrific event. To the firefighters and local emergency responders, you are second to none. We are grateful for the support and assistance from our community, especially our immediate neighbours.

Cancer walk

Fitness program aims to help at work Keeping workplaces healthy is a new goal for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Out for a walk as part of a healthy living project created by the Canadian Cancer Society are (front, left to right) Howie Vickberg, Shannon Todd Booth, Allan Mugford, (back left to right) Christina Beck, Robert Frick, Jennifer Copley, and Eileen Hill.

by Matthew Claxton

Preventing people from getting sick in the first place is one of the key goals of the Canadian Cancer Society. With half of all cancers preventable, a new program called Wellness Fits is aimed at getting workers healthier. A partnership with BC Healthy Families, the program has started in Langley, with Canadian Cancer Society staff in Langley taking up the program themselves. “We want to influence change, change in behaviour in the long term,” said Shannon Todd-Booth of the CCS’s Langley office. The program targets the straightforward things that can help most people: better eating, more exercise, and avoiding unhealthy habits like smoking. One of the slogans for the new program is “my one thing,” as the CCS encourages people to find the one thing that they can easily do or change to improve health. They are asking people to follow them on @cancersocietybc on Twitter and to share their choice of change with the hashtag #myonething. Last week, the “one thing” for a group from the Cancer Society office, including volunteers and staff, was a half-hour walk

along the Fort to Fort Trail. Christina Beck, with Wellness Fits, said a big part of the draw for workplaces is that it’s free to employers and staff. The program can provide a “self serve” version that will allow employers and small businesses to do much of the work themselves, with information from the initiative’s website. Or, businesses can invite Wellness Fits to come into their business for an on-site con-

sultation. The program identifies how workplace culture and policies can be changed to ensure a healthier office, workshop, or factory environment. Ultimately, it should benefit the business itself, as healthier employees miss less work due to sick leave, and have lower health costs in the long term. More information can be found at www.

Animal welfare

Sharks get reprieve from Langley restaurants A pricey status symbol is off the menu in Langley after a reversal by council on the shark fin ban. by Matthew Claxton

In the space of a few weeks, Langley Township council has flipped its position, agreeing Monday night to a shark fin ban. About 30 activists were in the crowd at the council meeting to back up the reconsideration of a proposal by Councillor Charlie Fox. At a meeting in September, Fox’s motion failed to draw much support. But following a flurry of letters to local newspapers, and a Union of B.C. Municipalities motion calling for federal and provincial action, the council seemed to be more inclined to go ahead with a ban. Activist Anthony Marr, of the Vancouver Animal Defense League, spoke to council before the vote, encouraging them to reconsider. He named two Langley restaurants he

said serve shark fin soup. One of them, the Empire Garden in Walnut Grove, has two varieties of shark fin soup listed on their online menu. The finning trade is responsible for depleting the number of sharks severely, which in turn can affect the food chain of medium and small fish, Marr said. “Sharks are extremely slow reproducers,” Marr said, and they do not produce hundreds or thousands of eggs at a time like salmon and many other species of fish. There is already a ban on harvesting shark fins in Canadian waters, Marr noted. Fins served here are imported from abroad. Studies have shown about 55 per cent of fins found in Canada are from threatened or endangered species of sharks, he said. While shark fin soup is associated with Chinese cuisine, Marr said he and most other Chinese-Canadians in the Lower Mainland oppose the practice. He pointed to support for bans in other cities with large Chinese populations, such as San Francisco, California, and to efforts within Hong Kong and other parts of China to limit the trade in shark fins. “If Langley opposes the ban, it stands out

like a sore thumb,” Marr said, noting that a number of other communities around the Lower Mainland have already approved bans. After Marr spoke, Fox called for the reconsideration of his original motion from September. His motion called the practice of cutting the fins off of live sharks – which are then often thrown, helpless but still alive, back into the ocean – “both cruel and archaic in its nature.” At the end of the meeting, there was a quick vote, with little debate. The motion passed 8-1, with only Coun. Grant Ward opposed. The motion means that the sale of shark fins, and associated products, is now banned in Langley Township. The original vote on Sept. 17 was defeated 5-4, with several councillors saying it was not within their jurisdiction or saying it should be dealt with at a higher level of government. Marr noted that the Canadian market for shark fins is a small part of the worldwide demand, but the fins are imported here in numbers large enough to be significant.

Harvest season

Langley bites into some delicious history

Apples were everywhere in the Fort Langley area Saturday.

Apple samples on toothpicks were in abundance at Derby Reach Regional Park Saturday. The annual Apple Day, organized by the Derby Reach-Brae Island Parks Association including a tree planting, orchard

tours led by Fort Langley historian Jane Watt and historical walks led by Jill Deuling of Metro Vancouver Parks. There was also a performance from the Langley Community Music School fiddlers, a straw pile, and kids activities. The main attraction, of course, were the heritage apples, with many different varieties available for tasting.

Woods have $3m purchase price A North Langley conservation group is being given an opportunity to buy a forest.

Langley Township has agreed to preserve one section of forested lands, but has offered the other for sale to a conservation group for $3 million.

by Matthew Claxton

A group lobbying to save forested land in Glen Valley will have a chance to buy the property. All they have to do is can find $3 million by mid-November. Watchers of Langley Forests (WOLF) sprang up

Langley Advance files

to protest the sale of two large plots announced earlier this year. Council agreed to preserve one of the properties, but another section of land, with a total of five lots valued at $600,000 each, is still for sale. At Monday’s council meeting, a report was released setting out how WOLF can buy the lands. The terms are that WOLF is to put down a $10,000 refundable option to purchase the land. It would then have to provide the “fair market price” of $3 million by Nov. 17. If WOLF does buy the

lands, it would keep them park, trail, and education, and recreational purposes. Members of WOLF were to discuss the matter further on Tuesday. The Township is selling the lands, which have sat vacant since the 1930s to the 1960s, depending on the lots, to pay for land purchases in downtown

Aldergrove. A new community centre, pool, and ice arena are planned for the area around the former Aldergrove Elementary building. Members of WOLF were not available to comment on whether they will try to raise the purchase price by the middle of next month.


Second of burglar brothers goes to jail A man who pleaded guilty to a break in will get 20 months in prison. by Jennifer Saltman

Special to the Langley Advance

An Abbotsford man who was caught with his brother committing a break-in at a Surrey home has been sentenced to 20 months in jail. Dane Dewey Dorozan pleaded guilty to one count of break and enter to commit an indictable offence in May. He was sentenced in B.C. Provincial Court in Surrey on Monday. Dorozan, along with his older brother Darwin, was arrested on Aug. 15, 2011 when police stopped the brothers as they drove away from the break and enter. Officers had watched the offence take place. Police had been watching Darwin because he was a suspect in a series of planned break-ins committed in Surrey and Langley between August 2010 and 2011. Dane Dorozan’s sentence will be followed by two years of probation.

Cranberry Festival

Boats race along Fraser Saturday This year’s cranberry races along the Fraser River are expected to attract roughly 20 teams – but there is still time to enter.


by Troy Landreville

Give Thanks... and get Spooky

If Environment Canada’s sunny weekend weather forecast holds true, Saturday should be a perfect day to continue a Thanksgiving weekend tradition along the Bedford Channel. The Fort Langley Canoe Club’s annual cranberry races, held in conjunction with the 17th annual Fort Langley Cranberry Festival, is expected to be held under clear blue skies and with an unobstructed orb of sunshine warming the paddlers. That’s great news for the estimated 20 teams expected to participate this year. The paddlers are coming from Vancouver and as far away as Cultus Lake and Chilliwack, noted race registrar Sue Tuttle. Fort Langley Canoe Club commodore Cheryl MacIntosh said the purpose behind the cranberry races is to promote paddling in Fort Langley, and to support the Cranberry Festival. The first cranberry race was held in 1996, with a few teams of paddlers steaming along the Fraser River from Chilliwack to Fort Langley. Each team has 10 people, including steerspersons. “The event has changed a lot over the years,” MacIntosh said. Over the next several years, the FLCC held small races that launched at the Fort campground. They were simple races that community members were welcome to join for some fun on the water. The event have grown as time went on, starting with no official teams, but just combining whoever wanted to paddle in a boat. It grew to a half dozen teams entered as complete crews, and now averages between 20 to 24 teams

Paddlers were a little too close for comfort during the 2009 Fort Langley cranberry regatta. This year’s races, being held Saturday along the Bedford Channel, are expected to attract some 20 teams. each year. The event has grown in popularity in the paddling community and is now quite competitive, MacIntosh said. Teams enter from all over the Fraser Valley, many from neighbouring community paddling clubs, and other teams use the event as annual family outings. The format has changed, too. Races are much more visible for spectators than when crews used to paddle from Chilliwack to Fort Langley. A course is set up on both sides of the Haldi Bridge. Some events involve zany challenges such as retrieving pumpkins or drinking cranberry juice. It’s not too late to get your oar into the water, either as a team member or an individual.

For paddlers who want to register on their own, Tuttle will try to find a seat for them on a team boat. To download a team registration form, visit, or email Paddling experience is not necessary, Tuttle said. “I know of one person who paddled for the first time at Cranberry and now she is not only a member of the club, but has joined a dragonboat team,” Tuttle said. “We encouraged community members to enter regardless of their paddling experience,” MacIntosh added. The first heat starts at 10 a.m. There will be two final races: one at 2:30 p.m. and the other at 3 p.m. Each team gets three races.

Let money talk about pipeline Anyone who has played poker – even a friendly game – knows you don’t show your opening hand and then bluff with draw cards. As the Enbridge pipeline rift grows between Alberta and B.C. – with the provinces’ leaders fueling acrimony rather than seeking middle ground – Premier Christy Clark needs to realize she played her environmental hand when she gave B.C.’s regulatory authority to the federal government. You can’t sit in full view of the table, pull some new cards out of your sleeve, and expect the other players to accept them as part of the original deck. Despite giving up her province’s environmental review process, Clark keeps trying to bring that card back to the table. Her only real environmental card is the public outrage in B.C. – and while that card has been effective in making Prime Minister Stephen Harper back away from the table a bit, Alberta Premier Alison Redford can easily counter with her own province’s outrage against B.C.’s environmentalists. And besides, that card is actually in Premier-in-waiting Adrian Dix’s hand. If she wants to sway Redford and her Albertans, Clark needs to come up with some economic cards. For instance, there is a growing demand within Alberta to have the Athabasca tar sands at least partially refined within Alberta’s borders, so that any pipeline would carry value-added product, both in terms of price and the intrinsic value of creating jobs for Albertans. For B.C., that would at least mean a slightly better environmental outlook, as a synthetic crude oil spill would be significantly less damaging than a mess of bitumen. Redford might also understand the value of being able to drive her province’s own energy economy, instead of bowing to the dictates of American and Chinese oil interests. Instead of bickering and back-biting, the premiers of two provinces that could have so much in common should be spreading oil on troubled waters... but only in the figurative sense, please! – B.G.

16th Avenue

People to blame, not roads

Dear Editor, I am sick and tired of hearing how it’s the road that is to blame. The roads all around the Lower Mainland are not to blame. Drivers speed, pass when it’s unsafe, and ride my rear bumper when I’m on the road. No matter what is done to 16th Avenue in Langley, the carnage will happen as long as there are idiots driving it. I’m sorry for the people who get killed. But people need to get off cellphones, slow down, leave room between them and the vehicle in front, stop passing over double solid lines, and concentrate on their driving. Township Councillor Charlie Fox is wondering why there are more fatal and serious crashes on 16th Avenue [Fatalities prompt call for changes, Sept. 18, Langley Advance]. It’s not rocket science. Let’s not spend a lot of money trying to fix something that isn’t going to get fixed until people drive better. Name withheld, Langley

Fox making political points

Dear Editor, There is nothing wrong with 16th Avenue, and Councillor Charlie Fox should stop trying to make political points. I travel that road every day, and the only thing wrong with it is the drivers. Everyone wants to do 80 km/h or 100 km/h on a road that is designated for 60 km/h. They pass over solid double lines and use left turn lanes as passing lanes. Everybody wants to be somewhere faster. 16th Avenue gets us from east to west/

west to east without road blocks, if you adhere to the rules of the road. If you don’t, then pay the price. D. Atkinson, Langley

Four lanes long overdue

Dear Editor, Traffic circles, lights, and speed bumps will not prevent drivers from passing when it’s unsafe – 16th Avenue needs to be widened to four lanes, and it is long overdue. Forcing trucks onto Fraser Highway doesn’t make any sense either, as most traffic must go through downtown Aldergrove (single lane). It’s a big problem already, without adding more vehicles. Al Hunger, Langley

Breaking rules deadly

Dear Editor, My heart goes out to the families of the people killed on 16th Avenue. Having said that, as a commuter using that road almost daily during the week, I see most vehicles keep up with the normal flow of traffic, albeit usually above the speed limit. While I have sympathy for the folks who live along 16th Avenue, it is an arterial road. There is a need to widen this road at some point, but if the drivers would obey the rules of the road, there definitely wouldn’t be as many problems. Valerie Cluff, Langley [Note: Fuller versions of these letters are online at]


No tolerance shown by vandalism

Dear Editor, In Canadian society, there is much emphasis on teaching and preaching the creed of toleration. On Sunday, a roadside memorial in Surrey, with crosses indicating the number of unborn babies killed every year, was destroyed by vandals. Was that very tolerable? If it had been a memorial for someone else who had

died, there would be outcry. Parliament voted recently on a motion to look into a 400-year-old law that says a baby isn’t human until complete birth. Despite having a “free” vote of conscience in parliament, there is a huge outcry for Rona Ambrose’s job because she dared to vote in favour. Where is the outcry from the feminists, that Rona is


Women need right to decide

Dear Editor, Today I was driving down 200th Street by Willowbrook Mall and was ashamed with what I saw. There were more than three blocks of men, women, and children holding signs about how abortion is not the option, and to choose adoption, not abortion. How many of those parents chose to help the children of B.C. waiting for adoption? There are toddlers, pre-teens, and teenagers waiting for adoption – someone to call Mom or Dad. Yet all people want to adopt is the tiny, cute baby. I am pro-choice. I don’t believe anyone should tell me what to do with my body. I had my unexpected twins, but not all unplanned pregnant women have as much support as I did. For some, abortion is an option, and that’s for them to decide. It bothers me that people assume I’m pro-abortion because I’m pro-choice. I’m for letting the woman decide. We need to educate our children. Birth control is not 99.9 per cent effective. We need to teach our children that, any time they have sex, they are able to become pregnant. They also need to learn about the many children out there who will never have parents and are waiting for adoption. Abortion is not a form of birth control, and as a society, we need to learn that it’s wrong to shame a woman for making a choice that is right for her. Name withheld, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at]

being discriminated against? Shouldn’t they applaud her right to vote as she sees fit? Oh, wait – it’s only if it agrees with their agenda. If we can’t even have a discussion of this issue without violence, namecalling, and screaming for resignations, what kind of democracy are we living in? The issue of abortion is not going away. The Supreme Court of Canada gave parliament the job to make legislation, and MPs have been too scared to do anything about it. It is a huge injustice in Canada that there is absolutely no protection for the unborn. We live in a society that just destroys anything it doesn’t like, whether it be a roadside memorial or an unborn child. When every science textbook talks about the beginning of human life at conception, and with ultrasounds and technology showing us pictures of the obviously human child growing, I find it atrocious that we still want to turn a blind eye. Deep down, everyone knows the truth, and it’s time to stand up for it. I just wonder: how tolerated am I going to be for this letter?

First Nations, early traders loved the cranberry Fort Langley’s history groups join in the festival fun. by Heather Colpitts

It only seems fitting that the Fort Langley National Historic Site would play a role in the Cranberry Festival. After all, the cranberry was a mainstay of the historic fort’s commercial enterprise. “We bring the history of the cranberry,” explained Nancy Hildebrand, a site visitor experience manager. The Hudson Bay Co. found the berry was a lucrative crop which it was able to export. But long before then, the local established First Nation had the berry as the centerpiece of its economy. Different First Nations family groups had jurisdiction over different food products. For some, it could be shellfish or salmon. For the Katzie, it was the cranberry. Intermarriage to gain access to the different foodstuffs was part of the complex social structure of First Nations before European contact. The historic site has

information it uses to teach visitors about the place this tart red berry has in the history of this community. Before Fort Langley was built, the Stó:lô people of the Fraser Valley harvested bog cranberries and traded with other Aboriginal people. When managers of the Hudson’s Bay Company saw the price that cranberries were selling for in San Francisco, they began trading with the Stó:lô as well. “We can sell as many cranberries as you can possibly furnish at from 75¢ to 1 dollar per gallon. A barrel being equal to 33 to 42 dollars, a much better article than salmon, therefore get as many as you possibly can,” James Douglas wrote to James Yale on Dec, 7, 1852. Fort Langley’s coopers built the barrels to hold the cranberries – as many as 725 of them in 1855 – and the Stó: lô brought in the berries. But the California market wasn’t as rich as Douglas had thought. The best price for Fort Langley’s cranberries was 55 cents a gallon, or $13 for a 24-gallon barrel. Still, it was more valuable than a barrel of salmon, and the little red berries contributed to the

Although dikes now prevent the Fraser River from flooding, and most of the bogs have disappeared, cranberries are once again being harvested along the Fraser. The variety now commercially grown is different from the wild cranberries shipped in barrels so long ago, but the tart taste and health benefits are the same. For the Cranberry

Festival, the fort will have activities at the festival site, including a draw for a family admission pass. Admission to the fort will be half price, and a bonfire will be going to keep people warm. Park interpreters will make cranberry bannock: “The customers get to roast it over the fire,” Hildebrand said. There will also be a cranberry toss game and a cranberry stomp inside the fort. Contestants (kids and adults) will have to do a bit of an obstacle course

and pull on galoshes to stomp berries in a tub. “We had that last year,” she said. “The adults found that pretty entertaining, as well.”

Museums join in the fun

Langley Centennial Museum will have activities in its building on King Street. “Families are welcome to come see the new exhibit,” said Liette Forestell, the arts and culture programmer.

There also will be crafts. “It will be cranberry themed,” she said. The museum will also be involved in the Kid Zone at Fort Langley Community Hall. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. The BC Farm Machinery and Agricultural Museum, next door to the Centennial Museum, is open annually until the Thanksgiving weekend, closing this year on Oct. 8. It has contributed the “Grim Reaper” entry in the Scarecrow Contest.

Gogos raising awareness about African plight A new group of grandmothers is devoted to helping families in Africa. by Heather Colpitts

Gogo is the jaunty term for grandmother in Zulu. The Langley Gogos is a new group of women who want to be surrogate grandmothers to Africa. “When I retired I was seeking to find an organization that I could support and devote my time to,” said member Carole Albertson. “I found out about a new club starting up in Langley and decided to join.” Many communities are creating their own Gogo groups, an effort that arose out of the Stephen Lewis Foundation and

its Grandmothers for Grandmothers campaign started in 2006. Due to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa, many parents have died and grandmothers are left to raise the children. Grandmothers to Grandmothers is about helping them and the different Gogos branches support that work. “So far our fundraising consists of collecting pennies and other change,” Albertson said. “We hope to do more and varied fundraisers next year, as well as increase our membership.” The group has a public event on Oct. 11. Starting at 7 p.m. in the Langley Mennonite Fellowship, 20997 40th Ave., guest speaker Jean Douglas-Webb will be doing a talk and slide show on her trip to Swaziland.

National organization

Chiefs take Gamble

Langley Township has the chief of chiefs, as Stephen Gamble leads a national association.

For the first time in 20 years, a B.C. fire chief has been named president of the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs – and he happens to hail from Langley. Township of Langley Fire Chief Stephen Gamble was elected to the position on Sept. 26. He is only the fourth fire chief from British Columbia to be made president in the association’s century-long history. “I’m quite humbled that my peers have elected me to represent them,” said Gamble, whose duty it is to speak on behalf of the members of the CAFC and the issues facing the Canadian Fire Service. “There is a lot of history behind this associaStephen Gamble tion.” Township fire chief The Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs was founded in 1909 and incorporated in 1965. Headquartered in Ottawa, the independent, non-profit organization is dedicated to reducing the loss of life and property from fire, and advancing the science and technology of the fire and emergency service in Canada. “This appointment recognizes Chief Gamble’s leadership and his dedication and commitment to the fire service,” said Township Mayor Jack Froese. “With 3,500 fire departments in Canada, this is a truly great honour and a reflection of the high standard of service we provide our citizens. The Township is privileged and extremely proud to support Chief Gamble in this role.” Gamble became Langley Township’s fire chief in January 2011, bringing with him more than three decades of firefighting and administrative experience. Having served for 33 years in Port Coquitlam, he was the first Township fire chief to be hired from another area. He is also past president of the Fire Chiefs Association of British Columbia and served as first vice president of the CAFC before being elected president. Gamble – who is proud of the CAFC’s dedication to issues such as obtaining tax credits for volunteer firefighters – now has national responsibilities, but is still centred in Langley Township. He said the local fire service will operate as normal, and will continue to be effective and efficient, thanks to the dedication of the men and women serving within the Fire Department.

Vendors round out Fort’s festivities

Unique and interesting goods and services will fill nearly 90 booths in Fort Langley.

A diversity of vendors, offering food to household decor and everything in between, will be on hand at Fort Langley’s Cranberry Festival.

“Last year we made just under $1,000,” said club secretary Wendy Canessa. “Funds this year are going to go towards the Langley Christmas Bureau and the Langley Food Bank,” she added. “We get six by Ronda Payne families every Christmas.

She is hoping to have her shop open at the entrance of Bedford Landing by Christmas. Simply Delish Soup and Salad will also have a booth at the festival. Owner Paulette Hawkings started her business of easy and nutritious meal solutions because she recognized how hard it can be for a family to sit down at the table, eat a meal, and communicate. “I really enjoy having friends and family around the table,” Hawkings said. “That’s when the sharing happens.” She likes participating at the Cranberry Festival because it’s in her community, and several items in her product list include cranberries. “I enjoy being there,” she noted. “I like supplying easy, tasty, nutritious meals to families who are really busy.” While there are 90 vendors this year, getting a booth is not automatic. It’s not enough to just be a locally owned or operated business. “They are juried not only on proximity,” Stewart said, “but also quality and variety of vendor and products. We want to keep that variety.”

Trinity Western University’s school of business is launching its speaker series next week with a presentationby Vancouver Board of Trade’s Darcy Rezac. The author will address the power of face-toface networking in the digital world during a presentation in Darcy Rezac the uniVancouver Board of Trade versity’s Northwest Auditorium on Thursday, Oct. 11. “Research shows that face-to-face networking is in decline in our connected world,” said Rezac. “People often say we are too busy to connect in-person, and many would rather connect electronically. Yet, it is almost impossible to develop the long-term trust required for success in business (and life) without face-to-face contact.” In a speech that is expected to last just over an hour, the former business executive with Alcan and General Motors – who also served as a federal assistant deputy minister – will suggest how to refresh and renew positive networking skills, how to discover which connections count most, how to find the time, and examine the powers and pitfalls of social media as a tool.

ith Dan Beer’s passion for Celtic music, one might suspect he hails from the Maritimes. He does not. Beer said he was born and raised in Fraser Valley, but his appreciation for that culture, and especially the music, has long fascinated him – so much so, in fact, that he married a girl from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, 27 years ago. “I have been drawn to Celtic East Coast for a long time,” he said. Ironically, the lifelong Langley musician never considered writing, singing, or performing Celtic tunes until his daughter promised her Grade 3 teacher that daddy would pen a tune about sailing ships. Feeling somewhat obligated, the industrial forklift sales exec agreed. He wrote Mariner’s Tale a decade ago, and that opened the flood gates for him to explore a whole new genre of music. “I loved playing it, and embraced the genre,” Beer told the Langley Advance. “It led from there.” About four years back, the Rankin Family and Great Big Sea fan joined forces with two friends and fellow musicians – another Langleyite, Dave Mercer (lead guitar and Celtic banjo), and Abbotsford’s Marc Andre (percussionist and vocal), to create a Celtic band. “The band name is The Seabillys – hillbillys by the sea, if you will,” Beer explained. “We are a Celtic band but acknowledge

Dave Mercer, Dan Beer, and Marc Andre – a.k.a. The Seabilly – will be among the performs at Cranberry Festival on Saturday afternoon. our roots from rockabilly, pop, and country.” And while each member of the band regularly plays with other groups, they all still come together an average of half a dozen times a year – as The Seabillys – to play their distinct blend of “salty” music. One of those limited performances happens this weekend, at Saturday’s Cranberry Festival in the heart of the village of Fort Langley. “We all love music,” said Beer, now 52. “The Seabillys keep the energy level high and fun. Mark is the jokester and will try to make me laugh within a song. Dave is the serious musician with the most god-given talent. I like to sing, write fun songs, and have fun. And we enjoy sharing with an audience.” Beer started singing with the church choir at the age of eight, and still sings there. And through

the years, he garnered a wide range of experience in multiple genres and venues. But now he spends much of his time writing country music with a definite Celtic lilt. It might be grasping, but Beer said he feels Irish. His father was from southern England, Cornwall, and Wales. His mother’s family was English and Scottish. “There is some Irish in there, as well,” he insists. So in addition to playing other genres of music, from pop to country, Beer said he gets his fix of Celtic tunes by playing most Sundays in White Rock, at S’laintes By The Pier, from 2 to 5 p.m. with Brian Best and the Irish Folk Session. “It helps me learn the traditional Irish tunes,” said Beer, who has gone on to write a lot more Celticinspired tunes, one of which he’ll be performing with his two daughters on Saturday.

The Seabillys will be on the Cranberry Festival main stage on Glover Road, from 1 to 2 p.m. on Saturday, and Beer will be inviting his 19-year-old daughter Devon (who got this started all those years back) and her older sister 22-year-old Celina to perform Ugly Truck. It is one of Beer’s Celtic-inspired songs, which he co-wrote with former Langley City fire chief Jim MacGregor. The Seabillys will also be performing at the Herring Sale in Steveston on Nov. 24, in aid of children with cancer. “I love to play for charity events,” he said. “I wrote a song called Its Not About the Money, where all of the proceeds from the CD sales go to World Accord, a Canadian non-governmental organization that does great work in Honduras and other places, working with rural communities, schooling, and clean water.”

nly 38 $200-tickets are being sold, ensuring those select participants at the Blue Plate Special gala next week will each walk away with original pieces of contemporary art. Fort Gallery holds its annual Blue Plate Special each fall to raise money for the artist cooperative. This year’s event, the fifth consecutive fundraiser, is set for Friday, Oct. 12 at the Fort Langley Community Hall, starting at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are selling for $30, entitling participants to enjoy an appetizer buffet, music by Lavalights, and access to the silent auction. But the gallery’s Tim Fraser explained that a limited quanity of the higher-priced tickets are also up for grabs, that number corresponding directly to the pieces of art created and donated by local artists. In a random draw, the holder of the first ticket drawn will be the first person to choose an original contemporary work produced by one of the gallery’s artists. The next ticket drawn will then choose from the remaining works, and so on. Each piece, Fraser assured, is worth more than the ticket value. Tickets can be purchased from the Fort Gallery or by phone at 604-8887411, Wednesdays to Sundays, from noon to 5 p.m

Langley Gogos & Langley Mennonite Fellowship Presents

An Evening with Jean Douglas-Webb PRESENTATION: TRIP TO SWAZILAND

October 11, 2012 – 7:00 p.m. Langley Mennonite Fellowship, 20997 40th Ave., Langley Admission: by donation More information: Carole Albertson

The newly formed Langley Gogos are a group of concerned grandmothers & grandothers who not only meet as a local group but as part of a larger Vancouver area group, the Greater Van Gogos & are connected with newsletters & assistance. Proceeds to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, Stephen Lewis Foundation which works with grandmothers in Africa who are raising children orphaned by AIDS.


hen people reminisce about 1970s and ’80s music, one of the chart-topping bands that comes up is Fleetwood Mac. Even today, 30 plus years later, the band’s music can be heard on radio stations around the world. With that ongoing appreciation for the Mac music in mind, Dreams was born, and together Tracy Masson (Stevie), Mario Parente (Lindsey), Wendy Gorrie (Christine), Todd McGarvey (Mick), and Ray Doucet (John) formed a tribute band. From the music to the costumes, Dreams endeavours to portray Fleetwood Mac with as much authenticity as possible, performing casinos, private functions, and private concerts throughout North America, and especially around Alberta and B.C. Fans so enjoyed Dreams’ last appearance in Langley – more than a year ago now at a Retromania concert – that show promoter Rob Warwick was anxious to bring them back. Dreams (a.k.a. the Mac Pac), along with special guest Totally Tom Petty, will be performing at Cascades Casino’s Summit Theatre on Friday, Oct. 12. Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show to follow at 8 p.m. Tickets are $27.50 and available from casino guest services, at 604-530-2211, or online at

David James and Big River are back in Langley later this month for the Cascades Casino’s special Sunday afternoon Malt Shop Memories series.

Malt Shop Memories series

Man in Black is back by Roxanne Hooper


avid James is so convincing as Johnny Cash that the parttime Nanaimo house painter and musician landed himself a voice-over role in a documentary about the legendary Man in Black. And now he’s sharing a taste of that experience with Langleyites when he comes to town for a show next week. The film, which is currently making the rounds on the film festival circuit, is called My Father and The Man In Black. It tells the story of Cash and the country musician’s long-time manager (1960-1973) Saul Holiff. The documentary was produced by Holiff’s son Jonathan. “It is a very powerful film, with many facts about Cash, June Carter [Cash’s wife], and Saul and a wealth of unknown situations,” James Facebooked from Mexico a week before his Langley gig. “My voice appears as the voice of Johnny Cash… I was blessed to land the part,” he shared.

Consequently, James will be showing a trailer for this film on Oct. 14, when he performs his Cash tribute show at Cascades Casino’s special Sunday afternoon Malt Shop Memories series. Coming off a summer tour of casinos, showrooms, and festivals, James will be loading up his gear and the Big River posse (Todd Sacerty, Colin Stevenson, and Duncan Symonds) and heading to the Mainland later in the week. It’s been an incredibly busy summer, he said, the biggest shows being Trois Rivieres in Quebec before 10,000 fans and at the Surrey Canada Day before a crowd of 30,000. They’re off to Fort St. John and Drayton Valley after Langley. “Full-time musician is not far from now we are booked most weekends and have several winter and spring theater tours upcoming and more festivals next summer,” said James, who recently took on the stage name of David James, instead of his given name of Pittet. “No one can pronounced my last

British Columbians can recycle light bulbs and light fixtures at facilities around the province under the LightRecycle program. The program is funded with small fees on the sale of new products.

Showroom open: Mon-Fri 9am-5pm, Sat. 9am-3pm Closed Sundays


See the light about recycling Light products kept from landfill. British Columbia will have Canada’s first comprehensive program to recycle all lighting products without cost at the recyclers. LightRecycle is a non-profit program to recycle lighting products in British Columbia. Since 2010, LightRecycle has accepted residential-use fluorescent lights at collection sites across the province. The depots for bulbs in Langley include Edmonds Recycling and the London Drugs in Willoughby and Cloverdale, along with Wilway Lumber in Aldergrove. For fixtures, there’s the area thrift stores for working devices, and the ReturnIt centre in Murrayville and Walnut Grove Bottle Depot. (These are for the general public. Industry and commercial recycling is handled differently by LightRecycle.)

The expanded LightRecycle program now accepts all lighting products for recycling without charge, including all types of lights (bulbs and tubes), ballasts and lighting fixtures used in residential, institutional, commercial and industrial applications. LightRecycle has two separate collection system channels – an expanding consumer collection network for residential-use lighting products and a new large volume generator collection network for lighting products used in industrial, commercial and institutional applications. Examples of large volume generators include contractors, businesses, relampers, schools, hospitals, building managers and more. Each channel has specific collection options available based on the type and volume of products to be recycled. continued on A23…

incandescent bulbs, light emitting diodes (LEDs) and high intensity discharge lamps (HID). A lighting fixture is any product with a primary purpose to provide light. Common examples of residential-use lighting fixtures include floor lamps, chandeliers, table lamps, ceiling lights, flashlights and Christmas lights. There are more than 200 collection sites for consumers to drop off their burntout lights (bulbs and tubes) and over 80 collection sites across the province for consumers to drop off their old or broken lighting fixtures. There is no charge to drop

off lighting products. The LightRecycle program includes a growing network of over 40 collection sites for large volume generators that will accept less than a pallet of lights without charge. The first phase of LightRecycle was launched in July 2010 and included only residential-use fluorescent tubes and bulbs. In 2011, nearly 400,000 fluorescent lights were collected across the province from consumers and responsibly recycled. LightRecycle is funded by recycling fees applied to the sale of new products. • More at

Blanketing the community Milner Gardens hopes the community warms up to the idea.

The folks at Milner Gardens want to help keep people warm this winter and have a blanket and sundries drive.

To find more great rates and a mortgage specialist near you visit

All rates are subject to change without notice, and are not guaranteed unless confirmed by phone or fax. Rates shown are Annual Percentage Rates (APR). APR is for a mortgage of $100,000 with monthly payments and a 25 year amortization. APR assumes no fees apply. Should fees apply, your APR would increase.

A nice blanket is one of life’s true comforts so the staff at Milner Gardens is helping make sure people in need will have blankets. Milner Gardens is hosting a collection drive with the items collected being donated to the Gateway of Hope shelter “so together we can keep everyone warm this winter,” said Karlee Slaa, in charge of Milner’s marketing. “We will be collecting new and nearly new cleaned blankets,” explained Slaa. “We will also be accepting household items, new toiletries, new undergarments, clothing, coats and jackets, boots, gloves, and hats.” Take donations to the store on 216th Street. You can’t miss it. Milner Gardens is the one with a massive bed outside announcing the collection drive. The greenhouse has made it easier for people to help out. “New blankets will also be available for purchase in store for donation,” Slaa said. Don’t hesitate, the blanket drive wraps up Oct. 8 and Milner Gardens plans to have a comfy display of donations on its big bed for its public market on Oct. 6. “We would love for donations to be brought in-store, the cashiers will receive them,” she said.

Slaa added that the greenhouse and retailer wants to make the blanket drive an annual event, timed for when the weather starts to turn colder. The charity was chosen because it’s close by and familiar to the community. “Gateway of Hope is just down the road from Milner Gardens, and the work done by Gateway of Hope is incredible,” she said. To sweeten the deal, Milner has a prize – a $50 Spa Utopia gift certificate, for the person who brings in the most blankets. In 2010 alone, the Gateway of Hope helped more than 800 people, and the numbers continue to grow. The Gateway of Hope provides a homeless shelter for the community but also offers career training, a live-in program for men and women where they receive support and counselling to change their lives, and even support for families. The services include emergency food hampers, emergency clothing vouchers, fire victim assistance, housewares start up packages, Christmas food and gift hampers, legal assistance, family tracing, referral services, and distribution of bread and baked goods.

Spreading weed can kill livestock Home & Office Delivery

by Matthew Claxton


ansy ragwort doesn’t look so bad, with its clusters of yellow, daisy-like

flowers. But Langley environmentalists are trying to keep an eye on its spread, and to warn property owners about its presence. On Tuesday morning, Lisa Dreves of the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) and volunteer Bill Kippan of the Little Campbell Watershed Society were out mapping clusters of the weed. An invasive species from Europe, tansy ragwort is most dangerous to grazing animals. The plant is toxic to horses and cattle, but does not cause instant illness or death. Instead, it causes slow, irreversible liver damage. Over time, that can cause symptoms in animals such as depression, loss of appetite, aimless wandering, and a photosensitive skin reaction. The ragwort can be seen often in ditches and recently grazed fields.

It is common throughout the southwest corner of B.C., including in Langley. The growing conditions of this spring and summer seem to have been pretty good for tansy ragwort, noted Dreves. “It seems to have been really successful this year, unfortunately,” she said. LEPS is advising farmers to be vigilant for the weed and to cut it back whenever they find it on their property. Even those without livestock can help. The drifting seeds of tansy ragwort can easily float across property lines. LEPS, meanwhile, is working with the Township to slow its spread through ditches. The mapping Kippan and Dreves were doing will be handed over to the Township, and LEPS will recommend times when mowing or dredging in ditches will be most effective in killing or controlling tansy ragwort, along with its fellow invasive species Himalayan balsam, Japanese knotweed, and purple loosestrife. LEPS and its volunteers aren’t pulling out too many of the plants one at a time. “There’s way too much of it to hand pull,” said Kippan. The mapping efforts are part of ongoing projects by LEPS to map out a wide variety of invasive plant species in the Langleys.

Questions & answers

Big garlic gets best start before winter Dear Anne,

“I planted my garlic last spring (instead of October as I usually do) and it has grown very poorly. Can I leave it in the ground and harvest it next year? “I also dug my kitchen compost into my garden last year because a bear tore apart my compost bin. Do you think the kitchen composting caused the problems with garlic growth?”

In the Garden by Anne Marrison

Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via


Linda, via email pring-planted garlic is always smaller than October-planted garlic. Just how much smaller will depend how late in spring you planted it. If you planted as early as January, garlic will have much more time to make roots than if you planted it in April. Your garlic will survive if

it’s left in the garden (critters usually leave it alone). But you need to find out whether you have clusters with small cloves, or single bulbs that look like small onions. It will depend on how late in spring you planted them. You could leave the smallonion type right where you originally planted it. They bulbs will enlarge and each will split into a cluster, with lots of time to develop into a magnificent clove harvest.

Soil condition

If you have clusters of small cloves, you need to separate them and plant them separately. Otherwise, each small clove will try to make a small cluster, despite having insufficient space. They’ll get congested and probably give you very small cloves again – though you’d probably get lots of them. I’m quite sure the kitchen composting wouldn’t have caused problems with garlic growth. I dug kitchen compost into my vegetable garden for years and had great results with all those beds.

Ideal ratio key to growth

Dear Anne,

Lime can help reduce soil acidity, but overuse can cause other issues.


by Kim Greenwood Contributor arden centres and plant nurseries often advertise when it’s time to lime. Dolomite lime is advertised as an inexpensive way to make the soil in your garden less acidic. Generally, the ideal ratio of calcium to magnesium in soil is 10 per cent calcium to one per cent magnesium. Dolomite Lime contains a ratio of approximately 22 per cent calcium to 12 per cent magnesium – more than 10 times the ideal amount of magnesium. Yearly liming can cause excessive magnesium to build up in the soil, which can lead to soil compaction. The solution? Add organic matter – such as compost – to your soil, and plant species that are adapted to the conditions of your garden. The Pacific Northwest has naturally acidic soil, so rather than fighting it, plant beautiful, low-maintenance, native options. For more information visit demonstration-garden/native-plant-gardening.


– Kim Greenwood is the special projects coordinator for the Langley Environmental Partners Society.




“Can you tell me how to start new fuchsia plants from the ones I have.”

Vicky O’Conner, via email uchsias are so easy from cuttings that they can be propagated almost any time of year. Take a piece of stem eight to 10 centimetres long (three or four inches) and remove leaves that will be in the soil. Gently rub a little rooting hormone powder in the area where the leaves were removed. Or if the hormone is liquid, dip the bottom half of the stem in it briefly. Plunge the bottom half of the stem into a container of moistened potting soil. I usually add a trace of organic fertilizer into the soil – just enough to nourish the stem as it grows. If you put the stems into a greenhouse or cold frame, the humidity there should be quite adequate.


If they’ll be inside a house, put the pot with cuttings into a clear plastic bag and close it up with a twisttie. Condensation will form on the inside of the bag, so turn it inside out once daily. If the potting mix starts to look dry, mist the cuttings. Once fuchsias start growing, gradually open up the plastic bag until you can remove it completely. Don’t let the cutting dry out – keep them moist, but not wet. Don’t let the pot sit in water. Over fall and winter, the cuttings need to be kept in a shady spot. If they get too tall and lanky, just prune them back. That will help them bush out, ready for spring.

Dear Anne,

“What types of plants love tea leaves and coffee grounds?”

Mi Vuong, Vancouver oth tea leaves and coffee grounds are useful for acid-loving plants. That would include rhododendrons, camellias, kalmias, blueberries, African violets, ferns, azaleas, and amaryllis.

The breakfast kicks off at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday on Glover Road. The five dollar price covers a portion of the costs for a couple of pancakes, sausages and juice. The sausages are the special part of the breakfast. While there is a regular breakfast sausage available, the one that draws all the attention is the cranberry bratwurst which is made but once a year. Cranberry Festival is the only place to find the specialty cranberry bratwurst, which will also be sold by co-sponsor of the breakfast – the Lee family who will be providing pancake mix, syrup, and juice. The Lees are the owners of the former IGA which will re-open under the new Lee’s Market banner. “We only make the cranberry

bratwurst for this particular event,” said Casey Smith, a retired Freybe employee who helps with promotional events. “We started it a number of years ago and only sell it at this event.” Cranberry Festival organizer Shirley Stewart of the Fort Langley BIA noted, “We are going to have some celebrity pancake flippers, but there is no schedule for them just yet.” Expect local Township politicians to be behind the grill. For Smith, working with the community at Cranberry Festival is something he enjoys. “This will be my 17th year,” he said. “It’s a lot of work, but it’s a rewarding experience. People would miss it if we didn’t do it.” He added that because he has done the event for so many years, it has become a matter of planning via a checklist. “My biggest priority is making sure the sausage is made,” Smith said. Net proceeds from the bratwurst sales by the Lees will be donated to the burn fund, while the charge for breakfast covers partial costs and the remainder funds Cranberry Festival. Get to the breakfast early because it only happens while supplies last and with Smith expecting to feed more than 1,000 hungry people, it’s sure to be busy.

The Fort Wine Company makes a splash during the annual berry celebration by Ronda Payne


n its own, a visit to the Fort Wine Company can be interesting, but during this year’s Cranberry Festival, staff of the fruit vintner has planned a full-on celebration of the tart and tasty fruit. Visit the winery, featuring one of the closest cranberry bogs to downtown Fort Langley, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. In order to help visitors travel the distance to the activities at the Fort Wine Company, a shuttle has been arranged to run back and forth between the Fort National Historic Site at 23433 Mavis Ave. and the winery at 26151 84th Ave. “We have complimentary bus shuttles from the Fort to our winery running all day there and back,” noted Jennie Roberts, events coordinator with the Fort Wine Company. One of the most interesting activities at the winery is the oneday-a-year berry harvest. Due to

Pre-game antics backfire as Rams blast Rebels Langley rose to the challenge in a huge way Saturday at Victoria’s Bear Mountain Stadium.

The visiting Rams downed the Rebels 41-7 in a game pitting two of the top teams in the B.C. Football Conference. Cornelia Naylor Glacier Media

Alamolhoda said. The Rams outscored the Rebels 21-0 in the second half to turn a 20-7 halftime lead into a blowout. Leading the offence was quarterback Greg Bowcott, who completed 15 of 27 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns. Two of Bowcott’s touchdown throws found the sure hands of receiver Malcolm Williams, who ended up hauling in five tosses for 91 yards. Rams’ star returner/receiver Nick Downey also had a fine game catching the ball, with five

grabs for 113 yards and a touchdown. Langley’s balanced running attack saw Daniel Xavier carry the ball 12 times for 46 yards and a touchdown. Kyle Albertini chewed up 55 yards of real estate on seven carries. Naylor converted all four Rams’ touchdowns and added a 36-yard field goal to the visitors’ totals. On defence, rush end Sheldon Van Roon recovered a loose ball, jarred loose from linebacker Adam Konar’s blindside hit on Rebels’ quarterback Mark Black,

and ran it 80 yards for a touchdown. Konar had a big game with three tackles, an assisted tackle, a quarterback sack, and a forced fumble. ••• The Rams will now look for revenge against the Raiders, the only team to have beaten them. The teams last met Sept. 22 at McLeod Stadium, where the Raiders won 41-29. The defending BCFC champion Raiders lead the league offensively, with 366 points. Kickoff at McLeod Stadium is 4 p.m.

Broncos maintain unblemished record

Langley is one of three undefeated teams in the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s Atom Division. The Langley Broncos’ impressive season continues. Langley Minor Football’s atom squad downed the White Rock Titans 30-18 Sunday morning at McLeod Stadium, to improve its record to 5-0. The Broncos opened the scoring on their first drive of the game, when Caydon Beck-Boreson ran the ball in for a touchdown from the five yard line In the second quarter the teams traded touchdowns to keep the fans into an exciting game. In the third quarter, Broncos’ quarterback Jack Wilson scored on a 30yard run with the help of some great blocking from centre Brandon Folkerts, to give the Broncos a 12point lead that they would not relinquish. The Broncos’ defence came up big when it needed to, with Gage Moller and Corbin Reimer making timely tackles on Titan third downs to give Langley’s offence the ball back. With Langley’s defence shutting down the White Rock offense, the Broncos’ running game was able to keep the ball, chewing up yards and time on the game clock during the final quarter to help seal the victory. The Broncos are tied for top spot in the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s Atom Division, along with fellow 5-0 squads, the Coquitlam Lions and Richmond Raiders. Several other LMF teams were in action last weekend. Peewee Cowboys The Cowboys started off on the right foot against the Richmond Raiders Sunday at McLeod Stadium, before falling by a 12-6 score. The ’Boys first drive started at their own 45yard line. Runs by Jack Laurin advanced Langley to the Richmond 10 before the ball was turned over on downs. The Raiders’ offence was subsequently clobbered by three big tackles from Stryker Roloff, forcing Richmond to punt. Trevan Thavonesouk disrupted the punt and the punter was then tackled by Roloff in the backfield. It was now Langley’s ball at the Raiders’ 20. Powered by a great block by Quinten Van Muyen on

the corner, Laurin ran the ball to Richmond’s five yard line. The next play saw Laurin run the ball in for a touchdown. For the convert, Devon Armstrong was forced to throw the ball for the single point but the Cowboys were unable to cross the goal line. The second quarter started with an onside kick attempt by Roloff that was recovered by Shea Wutke. Richmond’s defence responded by pushing the Cowboys back to their own 50 yard line, and the ball was turned over. Tackles by Roloff, Liam Jeffrey, Liam Roberts, and Thavonesouk stopped the Raiders at their 20. Before the end of the first half the Raiders ran in for a touchdown. The Cowboys’ defence denied the Raiders’ run-

ning attempt for the extra point when Tysen Bright, Jeffrey, and Roloff stuffed the ball carrier at the line of scrimmage as the teams entered halftime tied 6-6. Langley started the third quarter with an onside kick attempt that was recovered by Richmond on their 50. Langley’s defence held the visitors to a threeand-out with tackles from Kai Thomas, Mateo Ciampelletti, Jeffrey, Bright, and Roloff. Later, with Langley in a punting situation, the Richmond rush forced Roloff to tuck the ball in and run. Richmond got the ball at Langley’s 25 and was able to run it in for its second major score of the day. Once again, the Raiders’ running attempt for the extra point was stopped by Jeffrey, Bright, and Roloff.

The third quarter ended with Jeffrey running the kickoff back 15 yards, aided by a block from Thavonesouk. The fourth quarter started with an exciting 60-yard run by Laurin, followed by a 25-yard run. The next play, Richmond intercepted the ball at their 10. Langley responded with key tackles from Tysen Tombe, Jeffrey, and Roloff, resulting in a fumble that Jeffrey recovered at the Richmond 40. Langley was forced to punt the ball away, but a roughing the kicker call on Richmond gave the ball back to Langley, which chose to gamble on third down instead of re-punting. The gamble didn’t pay off and Langley could not convert the third down. continued on page A36…

Amateur boxing

Welterweights headline Clash

Ten bouts are expected on Friday’s card.

The Clash is back. After a hiatus, the Clash at the Cascades amateur boxing series has returned to the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre. The last Clash show was July 13 at the Coast. The 20th Clash installment, taking place this Friday (Oct. 5), is headlined by a main event that will decide the best welterweight in the Lower Mainland, and perhaps the province. George Vourtsis of Sunshine Coast Boxing Club won the City welterweight title over Harrison’s Josh Van Ryan last February, in what Clash promoter and matchmaker Dave Allison described as the “fight of the year.” “The fight was amazing and took a toll on Vourtsis, who broke his hand…” Allison said. After three rounds Vourtsis was behind on two of three cards but stormed back to stop Van Ryan with only seconds left in a bout that saw boxing fans on their feet for most of the contest. Vourtsis’s opponent, Jarik Brown of Action Boxing is undefeated in his last three contests, with two wins and a draw. Allison described Brown as a “come-ahead pressure fighter” and he expects that he will test Vourtsis all the way. “It would not be surprising if Vourtsis finds himself in another fight of the year after Clash 20,” Allison said. Brandon Shorter of Revolution will face Kory Grim in an eliminator for the City light heavyweight strap. The two have been on a collision course for a few months and will finally meet, Allison said. On the other side of the elimination process are Darren Featherstone of Bisla’s and Julian Kim of Port Kells. The winners of these bouts will go against each other for the title Nov. 2.

Canadian championship contender Sarah Pucek is engaging in public sparring with Jaime Ward to open up this Friday’s Clash at the Cascades 20 at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre.

Troy Landreville Langley Advance

Mat Andreatta of City Boxing will rematch undefeated southpaw Francis Codilla of Contenders. Codilla won a decision over Andreatta back on Aug. 10. In total, 10 matches are expected, including a bout involving Rob Pryce of North Burnaby and Randy Hollett of Sunshine Coast. North Burnaby’s Remy Lavoie is scheduled to go up against Sia Fard of Action Gym in a welterweight fight. Manny Dhillon of Siutela Boxing will face Justin Lee of Sunshine Coast in a middleweight contest. Christian Antonio from Port Kells will see the ring for the first time when he meets Scott Woodward of Four Corners Boxing in a lightweight bout. Josh Lauriente of Port Kells will tackle fellow 11-year-old Gavin Bisla of Bisla Martial Arts in a tyke contest. Both youngsters are expected to weigh in at 80 pounds.

Public spar

A sparring session featuring Fort Langley’s Sarah Pucek and North Vancouver’s Jaime Ward kicks off the show. Pucek, a product of City Boxing, is training for a

Canadian title match that takes place Oct. 27, when she meets Lucia Larcinese from Montreal. The Canadian Boxing Federation’s Championship Committee is sanctioning the Pucek-Larcinese bout, which will be for the vacant Canadian featherweight championship. Pucek is coming off a layoff and has been ranked as high as No. 10 in the world by the World Boxing Council (WBC), as well as other sanctioning bodies. Ward’s pro debut was a successful one, in which she won by decision over Brandy Badry of Edmonton. The two are longtime sparring partners and will put on an entertaining display of boxing, Allison believes. “This is a show with everything: we have juniors fighting for the first time and a welterweight title fight, and everything in between,” Allison said. Doors open at 7 p.m. at the Coast ballroom and the action will start at 7:30 p.m. Children ages 12 and under get in free, and tickets are available at the door. The Coast Hotel and Convention Centre is at 20393 Fraser Highway, beside Cascades Casino.

Offensive line leads Bandits to win …continued from page A35

Richmond took the ball over at Langley’s 50-yard line, but with Roberts, Jeffrey, and Roloff leading the charge, a Raiders’ failed pass attempt on third down gave the Cowboys got the ball back at their own 40. With time running out on the last drive of the game, runs by Laurin and Nico Gerussi and an incomplete pass on third down saw the Cowboys’ drive stall on the Richmond 35 with time expiring. Flag Bandits The Bandits beat Coquitlam 14-3, with key contributions from all their players. Langley’s offensive line of Kirkland

Rolof, Jake Kirby, Rylan Trafford, Cody Oliver, Kyle Rowe, and Tristan Wruck held strong the entire game, giving Quintin Steinmann ample time to get the offense going. Touchdowns were scored by Jordan Tomica and Vaughn Pinchin. The Coquitlam offence had trouble getting started due to big defensive efforts from Victoria Sull, Matthew Crotenko, and Kyle Rowe. Junior Bantam Outlaws In a high-scoring affair, the Outlaws couldn’t keep pace with the North Surrey Eagles, who won by a 52-38 score Sunday at McLeod Stadium.

First impression

Mark Belling of Langley drove his Firman RFR 1000 to top spot in the FL class race recently at Mission Raceway.

…continued from page A37 Their second win in a row improves the Bears’ record to 2-2. Zander Baily had a terrific afternoon, returning a Mission fumble for a touchdown and adding a 100-yard touchdown run from scrimmage to his totals. Quarterback Brett Christensen connected with Andy Hanlen on a long touchdown pass. Pablo Wigwigan ran for a pair of touchdowns, including one he took in from 55 yards out. On defence, James Limoges picked up a Mission fumble and returned it for a touchdown.

Yun-Jae Boo recorded a pair of interceptions. Ryan Barthelson had an interception and made several key tackles throughout the game. Bantam Bears While the other Bears’ teams played at home, the bantams travelled all the way out to Vernon on Sunday. Vernon took an early lead but the Bears almost came back in the fourth quarter before losing 26-12. Brandon Sang and WonJae Boo scored North Langley’s touchdowns. The Bears nearly scored on several other opportunities, including a 65-yard catch-and-run play by Ian Canning that took the ball

to Vernon’s 15-yard line. Taryn Taylor and Jake Laberge also had receptions for the Bears, while Laberge and Kenzie Oram both made interceptions Darian Pritchard came up big in the tackling department. Midget Bears In the battle of the gridiron Bruins, the Bears lost 38-0 to the North Surrey Bears. The North Langley side started its first drive at its own 11 yard line, and proceeded to move the ball out to midfield on runs by David Fredo and Garrett Fredley, before a fumble halted its progress. After that, most of the game was played on the North Langley side of the field. Adrian Clements completed several passes to receivers David Fredo and Braeden Pritchard, including a couple for more than 10 yards, but the gains were nullified by penalties. The North Langley defence worked hard with stops made by Akash Verma, Alec Robertson, Marcel Mirek, Sam Cleary, Eric Boomars, James Aalhus, Fredley, Fredo, Clements, and Chris Baerg, who on one play launched a North Surrey ball carrier a few feet into the air.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Home, kids, food, nature, garden, soul, security and retirement bask in a smooth, productive atmosphere for the next two weeks, so launch projects and carry them through in these basic areas. (NOT in career, politics, etc.) The only exception is Sunday/Monday, when your energy and charisma rise, but your efforts might meet opposition or an “empty response.” Yet, from the cosmos, a “destiny event” could bring unasked-for aid from your government and/or mate. Receive, don’t start or push. Chase money midweek: deeper down, love’s inspiration brews. Errands, calls, Thursday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Errands, paperwork, reports, media, short trips, light friends and siblings fill the weeks ahead. All is smooth and productive, except Sunday/Monday, when weird desires grip you and life ignores your efforts. So rest, pray. Oddly, the cosmos might bring (unbidden) a gift – a friendship, a beautiful home item (buy nothing) a work pay raise? Your energy, charisma and clout soar midweek: ask favours, start things, make important contacts. Love’s possible. You feel secure, and will, for decades. Chase money, buy things Thursday/Friday (but not 1:30 to 6:45 p.m. Thursday, nor Saturday). Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The emphasis continues on money, earnings, buying/selling, possessions, memory, rote learning and sensual relationships. These, after 3 years of restriction, are finally buoyant – so put on your $ glasses, and go forth! (Except Sunday – dangerous notions – and Monday – nil results. Oddly, though, you’ll be chirpy, happy despite roadblocks, and the universe might bring you something lucky, especially in domestic, property or love areas.) Lie low, retreat and rest midweek: contacts with government, therapists and agents succeed. Your energy and charisma soar Thursday onward.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: This week brings relationships front and centre – and could bring romance midweek. Sunday/Monday emphasize your home, family, property values, security and nutrition – Sunday’s uncertain, worrisome; Monday’s lucky but “for naught.” Romance, joys with children, creative surges, risk and reward, pleasure and beauty fill Tuesday/Wednesday – for the first time in years, you might meet viable love, even a life mate. (The sex, health, money/career and “quiet” sides of this link will be fine also.) A gamble is also a good investment. Tackle chores Thursday (be safe) and Friday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Tackle chores during this easy, smooth week, Taurus. The only problems appear Sunday, when money and/or sex don’t mix with friends – you might have to choose. (Hint: think of your long-term future.) Monday’s lucky for money and employment – but stick to routine in your own efforts – let luck come from the outside, the cosmos. (All month, a sweet thread of romance and beauty wends through your life – Monday holds a hint of “destiny” in this – but again, let it happen to you rather than chasing it.) Home, domestic affairs midweek. Romance, creativity and pleasure sweeten late week. Gemini May 21-June 20: The romantic theme continues – and now, for the first time since 2009, you can actually succeed in a joyous way. Ditto for creative projects, self-expression, speculation, sports, games, gambles, children – you’re ready for new, fresh ways and horizons! (All this will be more obvious and significant next week.) Money urges need caution Sunday/Monday. Buy nothing – yet an odd luck will boost you. (In home finance?) Travel, friends, communications go well midweek – inspiration in career/work has deep, fertile roots: dream big! Home, family, irk and please Thursday to Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your charisma, energy, clout and effectiveness reach a yearly high, Libra. It’s actually a several-year high, so go forth during the next two weeks – make important contacts, start significant projects, and ask for co-operation – you’ll get it. The only “warning” exists for Sunday (when health or misgivings about partners can cause upsets) and Monday, when you should NOT begin projects. (However, Monday might bring you a legal, travel, learning or love “gift” – accept!) Your popularity soars midweek – light romance, optimism, wish fulfillment occur. Lie low, rest Thursday onward. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan (except Sunday/Monday, when unreachable goals will float into your mind). Feed your spiritual side, meditate, do yoga, be charitable. Deal with government agencies, counsellors, therapists, institutions and corporate head offices. These places/people favour you now to October 21, will offer sound advice and benevolent aid. It’s a great interval for planning retirement, making security investments, etc. Your imagination is strong, productive Tuesday/Wednesday, and your career benefits. Light sociability, optimism bless you Thursday onward. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Light romance, popularity, wish fulfillment, entertainment, optimism and a feel for the future that permits you to make good, intuitive plans – these fill this week and next, and fill them more joyously and buoyantly than at any time since 2009! Tackle chores Sunday (carefully) and Monday (routine tasks only). Love, understanding, far travel, philosophy, education, publishing and cultural events fill midweek. This entire first half brings domestic, property, career and money inspiration: an important one. Thursday noon to Saturday accents status and career – lucky Friday.

Oct. 7 - 13 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Be ambitious – higher-ups are observing you, might test or challenge you Sunday/Monday. This needs subtle handling: if Sunday, be realistic, steady and diplomatic: avoid all gossip, collusion. If Monday, be willing but delay any project starts until at least Tuesday. (Or, no test – just a face-to-face with authority, police, etc.) Midweek accents mysteries, detective work, finances, changes and sexual urges – pursue these. All week, you can “order” information, or imagine futures, that create new, superb life goals. Wisdom, legal affairs, learning, Thursday afternoon onward. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Love, wisdom, intellectual activities, far travel, culture, international contacts, publishing, religion, philosophy, legal affairs – these fill the two weeks ahead. Careful Sunday/ Monday, with chores, safety procedures, health – and don’t mix money and friends. Relationships excite and please you midweek – jump on opportunities, seek new horizons, approach that lively, naïve and regal person. You are inspired, and destiny takes a hand, in sexual, intimate, health, career and income zones. You might buy a status symbol. Results show Thursday onward, in sex, health and finances. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent lies on mysteries, sexual urges, lifestyle changes, health, big financial decisions and partnership/spousal finances. Be a detective, look beneath the surface. Romance, creative urges and speculative temptations might come to you Sunday/Monday, but you’d be wise to steer clear. Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday – you’ll get a lot done. Monday to Wednesday bless you in relationships (especially if you meet someone in a group) and bring inspiration/good imagination about your future – and your social life. Crucial relationships arise Thursday (argument) and Friday. • Reading: 604-727-3673
